Ethics is an integral part of conducting effective and reliable educational research. This paper discusses the ethical challenges that are faced when conducting educational research. It also features an analysis of Brevik’s research into why school leaders may decline to take part in educational research.
Ethical Challenges that Arise During Educational Research Ethical challenges that may arise during educational research include; firstly, fabricating research evidence and findings. Secondly, using research findings for unethical or illegal purposes. Thirdly, publishing research carried out by other researchers as one’ own research.
